Yesterday, our Democrat friends on the West Coast took to the polls, with Alaska, Hawaii, and Washington all holding caucuses. If you’re still fuzzy about what a caucus is, check out this handy article.

Yesterday, the Democrats held their caucus in Alaska, where Ted Cruz won 36.4% of the vote on March 1st. There are 16 delegates up for grabs for Democrats in Alaska. They also caucused in Hawaii for their 25 delegates, where Trump won 42.7% of the vote on March 8th. In Washington, a whopping 101 delegates were up for grabs in the state that won’t hold a Republican caucus until May 24th.

Going into yesterday’s races, Clinton had a delegate lead over Sanders, which Sanders sought to eradicate like he is trying to eradicate the 1%. On March 25th, Hillary was ahead with 1691 delegate and Sanders trailed with 949 delegates. While Saturday could not push him into the lead, it could give Sanders a much needed boost.

To help keep her lead, Clinton set up a campaign office in Alaska, a state that went strongly in the favor of President Obama in 2008. In Hawaii, President Obama’s home state that gave him 75% of the vote in 2008, Sanders was expected to do well due to low levels of African-American and Hispanic populations, which have been favoring Hillary in other states.

Here are your results from Saturday:

Alaska-Democrats

Bernie Sanders-81.6%

Hillary Clinton-18.4%

Hawaii-Democrats

Bernie Sanders-69.8%

Hillary Clinton-30%

Washington-Democrats

Bernie Sanders-72.7%

Hillary Clinton-27.1%
